One potential Supreme Court Justice confirmed.

Judge Priscilla Owen has been approved for a seat on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, after four years of democrat hard liners blocking this ABA Well Qualified judge. The vote was 56-43.

One of those who voted against Judge Owen was Far left extremist Senator Chuck Schumer.

Update: Well hush my mouth and give his sheets a good bleaching! Two Maverick democrats voted for Judge Owen, and one was none other than that "defender of the Republic" and proponent of the "Nuclear Option" when it benefits his party, former Klansman Robert Byrd! You know, the one who makes sure every bit of concrete poured in West Virginia is federally funded and named after him.

The New England Republican has some thoughts on why Senator Byrd voted for Judge Priscilla Owen.
